In modern persian 'farzin' has no usage but commonly precieved that this word means 'minister'. what morray said is very intresting regarding that most usage of 'farzin' at persian literature was for name of a chess piece not minister. and there is no mention to meaning of minister for 'farzin' in persian dictionarys. I agree that original meaning of farzin is only wiseman. excuse me for bad english. I'm persian.
